  1. If it was me and I did not plan on using the dozer much I would just swap the better head onto the 335 motor.  I do not believe that there was a huge performance difference between the two engines.  The TD-9 engine and sleeves are also getting very expensive.  Last time I checked they were selling for $500.00 per hole.  Another option would be to get your 4-3/8 inch sleeves bored out to 4-1/2 inches and clean up your old pistons.  Rings for either engine are still readily available through Hastings, but not cheap.

  2. Crankshafts should be the same they just changed bores over time 335, 350 and 370 cubic inches, 4-3/8, 4-1/2 and 4-5/8 inch bores respectively.  You will have to make sure you get the correct head gasket for whichever engine you are using.  if I remember correctly some of the early engines had the sleeves flush with the deck and the later engines they protruded several thousands. So on the early engines the gasket set on top of the sleeve and the later engines they went around the sleeve flange.  Good luck.

    Vic,

    That is what the drawing shows studs #1, 2, 3, 16 and 19 (5X) in the middle. Studs #5,6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 17, and 21 (8X) next to the injectors.  Studs #4, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 18, and 20 (8X) next to the intake and exhaust ports for a total of 21 stud bolts.  should work for your application.

  4. Yes, just purchased it about 2 months ago.  Problem is it has been jury rigged for so many years I am having to go through everything, electrical is the worst.  Hope to have everything fixed in another month then paint.  Also replacing lots of hydraulic hoses.

  5. Fill the fuel tank to the point that you can gravity fill the primary filter then fire up on gas bleed the secondary filter, crack the throttle and bleed the injectors.  good to go.  You might want to change the fuel filters at this time as who knows what you might have sucked up from the tank.

  6. If you are getting fuel coming out of the fuel pump top cover it is most likely the gasket that goes between the auxiliary pump and injection pump.  this gasket has to seal the return flow of fuel coming from the injection pump.  Be careful when putting in a new gasket as there is nothing to hold it in place so one side must be glued.  The  shaft seal could be the culprit but it would have to be severely damaged.
